    Hey Everyone - bless the maker and all his water

    Postby nistle2 » 12 Apr 2011 17:50

    Hey there.
    My name's Chris, or nistle2 if you like.
    I'm rather new to Dune. A good friend of mine has been a fan of the books for about ten years and I finally took his advice and picked up the first one. I enjoyed it immensely and have since finished Dune Messiah, Children of Dune and (as of 10 minutes ago) God Emperor of Dune.
    This has all happened in the past 5 weeks so my head is about to explode with all the knew vocabulary, ideas, themes, characters, etc.
    I'm compelled to keep reading although I'm certain I'm not grasping everything (who could on a first read, right? right?!) so I found this forum and it's been a valuable resource just to read other people's thoughts and expand my comprehension and enjoyment of the Duniverse.
    I look forward to posting in the future and getting into plenty of discussions about the intricacies of processing feces in the thigh pads (did I mention I've seen the Lynch film a few times haha) and other interesting topics.
    Thanks for having such a good website and I'll see you around!

    Wow, take it easy, man!

    I'm happy you found us, you came to the right place.

    I look forward to posting in the future and getting into plenty of discussions about the intricacies of processing feces in the thigh pads (did I mention I've seen the Lynch film a few times haha) and other interesting topics.


    Be assured, there is a topic on this. Feel free to bump old topics.

    Thanks for having such a good website and I'll see you around!

    We have a few topics on processing feces in the thigh pads, and about processing feces on the web (just look for a reference to "DN" and you'll see what I mean)

    Welcome, by the way!

    I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

    Welcome, nistle2. Nice to meet a new reader of the series.

    I'm still very proud of The Quarry but … let's face it; in the end the real best way to sign off would have been with a great big rollicking Culture novel.
